  • If my body was broken open and you could look inside
    Would you only find flesh
    Just the useless parts of an obsolete machine
    Would there be any sign of life
    Or would you only find death
    Would there be any evidence of a human soul trying to escape
    If a flame once burned within this shell
    Set me on fire one last time
    Is there a clear division of soul and spirit marrow and joint
    Can the human body still give you glory even in death
    May the ashes tell the story of what work was done within
    May my soul pause to witness as this body goes up in flame
    Set me on fire
